AIBA World Championships 2013 where he may feel he has unfinished business. Plus the Commonwealth Games 2014 in Glasgow, should be more than enough to keep him busy before deciding if its worth waiting for Rio or go pro in 2015 at the age of 25.

Seems like he's got his head screwed on from where I'm looking. British pro heavyweights seem to be in plentiful supply at the moment with Haye, Price, Fury, and Del. He's only had a relatively small number of amateur bouts and some obvious flaws.
He can work on these with the view to going Pro, while picking up a nice regular cheque, staying with McCracken, and building his profile for when he does make the switch. Those guys mentioned above will be either retired in the case of Haye, or at a few levels above him, so he can build sensibly maybe on a few big undercards, without daft calls for domestic "superfights" after his 6-7 pro outing.

The lad seemingly has a plan, I hope he sticks with it.
